basi acutis apice obtusis vel obtuse et breviter acuminatis, pedunculis
axillaribus vel paullo supra-axillaribus petioles vix superantibus, flori-

SamvH prioris. Folia 5-8 poll, longa, 1-fc lata, petiolo {-poll., crasse coriacea,
supra nitida, subtus pallida, nervi crebriores quam in priore specie, PeduncuR $-%
poll, longi, squamis distichis bractcata. Sepala basi cordata, submembranacea, in sicco
nervosa. Petala est. l-|-poll,, glabriuscula, basi areola triqiietra pubcscente notata.
Ovaria adpresse pilosa, stylo longe subulato triple longiore superata.
Though, certainly close to the last species, this appears sufficiently distinct. Its
leaves are longer and narrower, and its flowers larger, than those of G. TJtwaite&ii.
The fruit is unknown.
5.  G* Malayanus (H.f. et T.) ; foliis lineari-oblongis longe acu-
minatis utrinque glabemmis, pedunculis petioles parum superantibus, .
floribus pollicaribus, petalis exterioribus oblongo-lanceolatis pubescen-
tibus.

Ramuli elongati, glabri, cortice ruguloso albo ; partes novella fusco-toxncntosulee,
cito glabrescentes. Folia basi acutiuscula vel rotundata, 6-9 p?ll. longa, lf-3 lata,
petiolo i-poll., supra lucida, subtus pallidiora. PediceUi azillares, Vl-poU., Mvo-

Petala exteriora l-l|-pollicaria, late unguiculata, dorso linea longitudiioali snbcari-

extus dense albido-sericcam vix semipollicem altam coalita. Ovaria dense aureo-
sericea, stylo ajquilongo subulato terminata. Torus fructus globosus, tomentojaus.
Carpella polllcaria, elongato-oblonga vel cylindrica, interdum medio parura constrict^
apiculata, pediccllo J poll, longo suffulta, atix>-fusca, granulosa, pitis pancis sparsis
aureo-sericeis vestita, detnum glabrescentia.
This species seems identical in foliage with G. gigmteus> but is very distinct in
the size and structure of the flower.
